YouTube’s Screen Junkies Honest Trailers creator Andy Signore has been accused of sexual abuse by not one, but two women.
Both women have taken to social media with their allegations. Emma Bower, who was a former intern to Andy, posted on Twitter. She said that in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, she is bringing light to the fact that Andy came across some photos of hers and decided to take it upon himself to message her and say he was jacking off to her photos… and more (as seen in the images included in her tweet.)

April Dawn, another collaborator with Screen Junkies, also posted a tweet outlining her experience with him. April even went to their HR department with two other women to lodge a formal complaint against Andy’s behavior but their complaints were brushed aside. She continued by saying that Andy even “threatened my boyfriend’s job security, saying he would fire him if I told anyone” and even tried to get sexual favors from her in exchange for a job.
